The captain pilots, you do the rest!
We have added 13 new barges to our offer this year. Half of them at the top end of the market like Amaryllis, the other half dedicated to families and small parties looking for comfortable budget cruises. We also extended our self-catering offer for independant canal cruise enthousiasts ready to shop and cook themselves to pay less: Magnolia in Burgundy, Mirage & Saraphina on the Canal du Midi propose the whole boat from 6000 Euros a week. The Captain pilots, you do the rest! Last, but not least, several privately owned boats can now be chartered for short cruises between 3 and 5 days. Contact us for more information.
from 2 to 24 passengers
Cruising along the picturesque canals and rivers of France is a unique opportunity to discover the magnificent French waterways. Hotel barges are comfortable and often luxury vessels. They carry between 2 to 24 passengers, all of whom enjoy the celebration of French gourmet cuisine and locally grown wines whilst exploring the countryside in the most relaxing form of travel. Hotel barging is unique!

Choose the region you wish to explore, then look at the size of the boat. Once you narrowed the offer, look at the size of cabins, the decor and the ambience of the boat. Each barge is different and has its own feel. The choice is yours!
The most famous cruising areas in France are Burgundy and the Canal du Midi whilst Alsace and Champagne offer also very scenic cruises. Less known but equally delightful experiences on hotel barges are available on the river Cher in the Loire Valley or you could enjoy barging on rural canals of Brittany. The connoisseurs could also plan a wine cruise from Bordeaux to visit the World most famous vineyards.
